I have written a tutorial on how to program your own AutoPilot/Flight Controller from scratch using an arduino/ArduPilot/RaspberryPi. The tutorial will walk you through everything from reading the RC radio and controlling the motors through to how the PIDs are stacked on top of each other to…Continue
This week has had quite the number of battles. I finally got the Coffin Copter in the air and flying very nice using the Ardupilot. I don't think I'll even go back to Naza.

I'm looking for suggestions on any mods or upgrades I can do to this RQ-11. I hope the Video was enjoyable and educational.…Continue
Geo-tagged aerial pictures are very useful for mosaic mapping as well as the creation of accurate 3D models from a terrain.
Michael Oborne added a great tool for injecting GPS data on the EXIF tags by using APM's telemetry log from a flight.
This tutorial was…
This WallChart.pdf is a first draft of an idea to provide diagrams of the relationships between the different modules of any Arduino drone project that new users can stick on the wall.
The pdf shows a map of how…Continue
